UPDATE! Through the seriously hard work by the three organizers and bidding generosity by many, Handmade for Japan raised over $75,000 in three days from the eBay auction! Direct donations can still be made here. Congratulations and thank you to all!
Potters and fellow artists are rallying to raise money to assist victims of Japan’s catastrophic events of last week, and ongoing problems and efforts in recovery. Please help this cause by spreading the word & bidding on the amazing work donated by more than fifty artists. The eBay auction begins at 8 pm EST, Thursday March 24th and continues through 8 pm EST, Sunday March 27th right HERE.
They have been overwhelmed with donation offers, and now only need help spreading the word and having lots of bidders for all the great donated work. Become a fan of their Facebook page HERE and follow them on Twitter HERE to keep up on the details and news. Previews of the auction items will be available in English and Japanese through their Facebook page and Twitter updates.
Handmade For Japan’s mission is to raise money (hoping for 25K) through an online auction for relief efforts to assist the victims of Japan’s catastrophic earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear emissions.
Handmade for Japan is an online auction of unique, handmade art donated by concerned, invited artists and organized by (only!) three concerned artists, including Ayumi Horie, the project’s instigator. One hundred percent of all net proceeds collected via the auction will be donated to Global Giving’s Japan Earthquake And Tsunami Relief Fund.
This little house vase/flower brick is my contribution for the auction. Please show up on eBay this Th-Sun and bid on great work by caring artists to help needing people.
